This dress reminds me of summer weddings, especially when I wear it with a string of pearls. Since I don’t have any weddings on docket this year, today I paired it with a cubic silver necklace and paper bead bracelet to play along with the vibrant semi-geometric print.
One of my favorite things about this dress is the super-long sash. It’s probably a good seven feet long and I have to wrap it around myself multiple times, which adds more visual interest to the waistline. The dress itself is a very simple shape, basically just a big sack with understated detailing around the neck until you add the sash.
The drawstring hem of this dress puzzled me to no end when I got it. I didn’t notice it in the online images when I bought the dress, so it came as a surprise. I like the slightly gathered shape it gives the skirt, even though it is a little bizarre to have a bow dangling down the side of my leg.
I’ve thought about attempting to make a similar dress out of extra-large t-shirts, but I haven’t taken the plunge yet. The existing hem of a t-shirt would be an excellent sheath for the bottom drawstring.
This is only one of several dresses I have from Fair Indigo, all of which are wicked comfortable and versatile, but this one is my favorite. I don’t wear it as often as I could since the print is so memorable, but the fact that I tend to save it for important occasions just serves to make it more special.
